Grape juice won't do it. Something alcoholic is required.

The name-changing celebratory offerings we used when we changed the name of our boat were provided by Makita and whoever made the hair dryer we used to remove the vinyl letters on the sides of the flying bridge. The Makita was used to sand the painted name off the teak transom boards.

Regarding thinking through names...

In the mid-70s, I wanted to name a boat "Star" - but in a language other than English. Being from the Southwest, Spanish was my preference. However, Estrella is too often mispronounced by non-Spanish speakers. My late wife spoke German, so I asked her. The German word for star is “stern”… I could just see people seeing that on the transom and walking forward to see what I had painted up there… We finally settled on something else.

Three of the best boat names I've seen to date. Lobsterboats on Prince Edward Island.

as long is it isn't a sailboat name that's completely incomprehensible, like "OteOteOa"

I have been living in Cajun country for over 20 years and have seen just about every variation of the word "Cajun" used as a boat name. I think "KaJen Girl" is a great boat name. You wont be the only "KaJen Girl" to be heard on the radio. I would use the word 'Girl' not 'Girls' as singular since it is the name of the boat. Just my opinion.

Here is one I saw on a sailboat years ago, Zubinelgenubi the name (Arabic) of a star
Good luck with getting that across on the radio.

In Old Saybrook one boat was named JOHN


So when customers called the office could easily state , sorry he is at the JOHN.

One trial you will need to do with the admiral present is practice a mayday call with your new name. You will see why......
